I enjoyed this book so much, & it left me with a huge smile on my face! Valentina knew Ford as a teenager because of summers in Montauk, but now he has grown up & all man! He was the perfect book boyfriend - stable, sweet, persistent (but not pushy) & only has eyes for Valentina! Valentina frustrated me a little bit, because she wasted time thinking their relationship was inappropriate before they actually got together. But once they got together, man, it was hot! If you love a quick, fun, sexy summer read like I do, then I highly recommend this book!
This was such a great story, by far my favorite book from this author.
I loved this book. Now I want my own Ford!
There are good books and then there are great books. All Grown Up is exactly that a great book! The author is a masterful storyteller and the writing is so very good. I was so caught up in the lives of Valentina and Ford and all the people who are important to them. It all seemed so very real. The conversations, the banter, the questions, the risks, fears, and of course the undeniable attraction. I loved everything about Ford. He was forced to grown up faster than his other 25 year old friends when his parents died in a car accident and he had to take care of his younger sister and also take his father's place in the family business. Valentina having to face life after a difficult divorce after being married since 17, finds it very uncomfortable getting back into the dating scene. With a huge push from her best friend Eve and due to work for Ford, Val & Ford start on a beautiful journey. It's not easy but its genuine, it's not always kind by others but it's patient by each other, and when the love happens it is so beautiful to watch. “Age is just a number to use to count all the years I’m going to love you”. There are a lot of feels in this book. I cried hard, I laughed out loud, and I absolute loved the HEA. My new fav BBF is Ford Donavon :)
All Grown Up is the perfect age gap romance with a twist. It has all the things you love about Vi Keeland books plus more. Ford is the perfect hero, I loved how mature and down to earth he is towards Val. I also really loved all of the side characters and hope they get their own books someday. This is the perfect summer read with laughs, good chemistry and heat, plus emotions and heart. This is my favorite Vi book ever and I cant wait to see what she comes up with next
Loved this book, love all of Vi’s books. Total addict. Can’t wait for her to write another.
Ford = THE BEST Vi Keeland book boyfriend EVER!!! He hit me in all the right places and I felt like getting my fill was completely impossible. I became insatiable when it came to Ford. All Grown Up is written with utter exquisiteness! Ford is charming, funny, sexy, smart, witty, thoughtful, loving, strong, and considerate. I'm sure I could fit in more complementary adjectives because these just aren't enough. And Valentina - she is so many of us. Because of her life experiences and her age, she finds herself lacking in the self esteem department. Despite all of it, however, she does not lack in strength. Ford is her salve, and she is his. The pairing of these two couldn't be more spot on. This story touches on so many issues of the heart that are relatable, which made for a captivating read. Vi Keeland did this trope proper justice. It was impeccably done and left my heart full. If I could recommend a Vi Keeland book to anyone, All Grown Up would be at the top of the list.
